Worth Bagley Marker

Worth Bagley Marker

ca. 1950s

After his release from prison, William F. Keys chiseled and placed a stone to mark the site where he shot and killed Worth Bagley. After it was vandalized and knocked over, the park removed the marker from the site for safe keeping. A metal marker has been installed at the site where the granite original once stood.
